YK-11 is one of the newest SARMs (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators) that is currently undergoing research. Unlike other SARMs such as MK-2866, LGD-4033, and RAD-140, it is steroidal in nature. It is argued by some that YK11 doesn’t quality as a SARM and that it’s just a synthetic anabolic steroid.
YK11 closely resembles the structure of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) and just like DHT, it is a partial agonist of the androgen receptor. Besides being a SARM, it is also a myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin also referred to as growth and differentiation factor-8 is a protein secreted in muscle tissues. It limits muscle cell growth.
YK-11 PROS AND CONS
- It encourages muscle tissue growth;
- It boosts fat burning;
- Supports and enhances bone health
- It likely causes testosterone suppression;
- Its safety and efficiency have not been tested on humans or animals;
- The long-term side effects are unknown
How does YK-11 liquid work?
YK11 binds to the androgen receptors in the skeletal muscles. As a result, it increases muscle mass and support and enhances muscle tissue growth.
It also inhibits myostatin, resulting in strong YK-11 anti-catabolic properties. Research results show that YK-11 simply aims to increase follistatin levels. Follistatin is another naturally occurring protein in the human body which helps keep myostatin in check.
YK-11 binds itself to the androgen receptors inducing muscles that create more follistatin. As a result, myostatin levels are reduced. Myostatin is a protein that limits the growth of skeletal muscle. This in term increase muscle mass.
YK-11 does not only increase muscle mass but is also known for effectively boosting strength.
INCREASES BONE DENSITY
YK 11 also increases bone density, which helps to strengthen the bones. This is important because stronger bones means a decreased chance of injuries.
